National Assistant Principal of the Year Award

The NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year program annually recognizes outstanding middle level and high school assistant principals who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students. These assistant principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession.

Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity, and the U.S. Department of State Office of Overseas Schools may select one assistant principal to represent their state.

From these state winners, three finalists are named as contenders for the National Assistant Principal of the Year award. The NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year is selected from among the finalists.

Be sure to have your application in by Monday, November 23.

All state APOY winners will be invited to attend the National Principals Conference in Boston, July 18-20, 2019. At the conference, state APOYs will engage with school leaders from across the country, gain unique recognition before a national audience, and benefit from complete access to NASSP’s premier professional development offerings. NASSP will cover the cost of hotel for up to four nights and registration to the conference for all designated 2019 state APOY winners. NASSP will not cover the cost of travel for the APOY state winner.
The national winner will get access to the McKinsey Management Program for School Leaders (MMPSL), a dynamic and highly interactive online leadership training program. The winner will receive the full MMPSL Executive Leadership Development Program.
